Suffers Long and Is Kind ends with Frederick Wentworth married
to Louisa, and Anne Elliot about to marry James Benwick.
While Anne happily settles into married
life, Elizabeth Elliot realizes hers is becoming very
unsettled! As a woman approaching the "years of

everything in his power to have her.
Laura Louise is also a
comedienne at heart and pokes a bit of good-natured fun at the
adaptations of Austen.
